The last 24 hours in Donbas conflict zone ended with the enemy’s decrease in activity. In contrast with previous days, the militants didn’t use arms with a caliber larger than 100 mm. But it’s too early to speak about a full cease-fire, as the ATO HQ Facebook page informs.

In Donetsk sector, in the evening and during the night, the militants shelled the Ukrainian stronghold near Avdiivka with mortars and heavy machine guns four times. Using the same arms, they fired at Butivka mine three times. Opytne and Pisky also received some shelling, and one soldier was wounded in Luhanske.
